ABSTRACT
The article discusses the efforts to seek the release of William Richards, convicted of killing his wife, Pamela Richards in 1997. Richards contacted the California Innocence Project (CIP) for assistance to overturn his wrongful conviction in 2001. The first two trials resulted in hung juries, while the third trial resulted in a guilty verdict issued by the jury. In July 2003, a judge granted the motion to have Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) testing done on evidence.
